ⓘ Prince Albert (genital piercing)

The Prince Albert is one of the most common male genital piercings. The PA is "a ring-style piercing that extends along the underside of the glans from the urethral opening to where the glans meets the shaft of the penis." The related "reverse Prince Albert piercing" enters through the urethra and exits through a hole pierced in the top of the glans.

While some piercers may choose to avoid the nerve bundle that passes through the center of the frenulum, others may feel differently. Piercings can be sent if the bearer is circumcised. Otherwise, the piercing must be done outside the centre, so that the surrounding skin can change yourself.
